Requirements for Establishing and Operating a Large Warehouse in Vietnam

The very first thing to consider is location and it depends on your business requirements, such as budget and accessibility. Then, to open your large warehouse in Vietnam successfully and comply with the local regulations, you must determine what requirements you have to follow through. There are two important operation procedures to establish a large warehouse in Vietnam: the legal procedure and the administrative procedure.

Initial Establishment Documents for Operation

All business owners must have these legal documents for the setup and operation of their large warehouse in Vietnam: Investment Registration Certificate (IRC), Enterprise Registration Certificate (ERC), and tax code registration stamp and certificate.

Both IRC and ERC are the most important documents of all and they can be in written or electronic format. An IRC is mandatory for companies that provide a warehouse or factory for rent or those who rent a warehouse or factory. An IRC shall include information about the projects and the investors. As for the ERC, it is required for enterprises renting or owning a ready-built factory or warehouse.

Compulsory Departments to Have in Place for Warehouse Operations:

Companies need to have these three departments set up before they can run a large warehouse in Vietnam:

  • Recruitment Department

All businesses need employees to operate and thrive. This is why a recruitment department is critical as it gets your hiring going and filling positions with staff having the right skills and talent. Also, a recruitment department builds and allocates human resources – which is part of the company’s long-term production strategies.

  • Administrative Department

A fully-functioning administrative department is equipped with skilled reception staff to ensure an efficient administrative operation. A seamless administrative operation will in turn lead to higher overall warehouse productivity and efficiency.

  • Accounting and Legal Department

An accounting and legal department is also one of the departments that shall not be missing from a company with a large warehouse. This important department helps enterprises to prevent all possible legal complications. Legal compliance brings forth more opportunities and fewer resources wasted.
